Pro Import AE 4.0
at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) event this April, and on Tuesday the company announced it’s shipping. Pro Import AE 4.0 costs $495; upgrades from previous versions are available.
Pro Import AE is a timeline translation software utility for Adobe After Effects. You can use it to translate sequences from Avid and Final Cut Pro, or import projects from Apple Motion. It imports all your media and clips, translates effects and recreates them for you as After Effects compositions. The software works with Adobe After Effects 7.0 and Creative Suite 3.
The new version of Pro Import AE natively supports Intel-based Macs as a Universal binary, and features a new advanced interface with a number of new enhancements. It also supports Final Cut Pro “multiclips,” displays Motion particles and replicators in After Effects, translates Red Gian Software’s Magic Bullet Colorista plug-in from Final Cut Pro to AE, supports Avid Advanced Keyframes in picture-in-picture and 3D Warp, offers improved support for HDV, DVCProHD and XDCAM for Final Cut Pro users, and more.
System requirements call for MAc OS X v10.3.9 or later, After Effects 7.0 or later, QuickTime 4 or later, Avid QuickTime codes and Avid DV QuickTime Component.
